My dad officially had Alzheimer's 1253 days.
He was diagnosed on 6/21/2004 and he died on 11/26/2007.
It's been 1253 days since he died (as of today, 05/02/2011).
It's been as many days since he died as the length of time he--WE--suffered through the trials and terrors of Alzheimer's.
The 1253 days that he was sick took forever to pass.
The 1253 days he's been gone have been a blink of an eye.
Alzheimer's robbed my dad of all these things and more. Alzheimer's robbed me and my mom of so many things. My mom will never be the same. Being a caregiver for 1253 days stripped something essential out of her that is never going to come back.
My dad was always into playing his "special" numbers in the lottery. He'd be telling me I should play 1253 in the Daily 4. I'm going to Stop and Shop tomorrow, I'll pick up a ticket. If I win, I'll donate the money to Alzheimer's.
